many photography sites put the winning picture of the month on the homepage, this could be a good idea for this site

It would be nice for top three to get them but if there are three categories then I think you can have to much of a good thing so I would go for winners only.

I agree with Marshall, winners only. It's a nice honour for that person and their fish. Maybe a special mention in the results, but only if it makes sense. In this month's contest, the worst you can do is fifth, for example :P

We already put the winning picture on the homepage. I don't think the piece of software I use at the moment to display the winning photo will allow three photos, I will have to check. If it doesn't then I will have to come up with another way of displaying all three winning photos.

I may not always be right, but I am always the BOSS :-)

Well it wouldn't be much a problem if the second and third runner up aren't mentioned on the homepage.
I would opt for "the winner takes it all" after all there will always be another month.

England won 1966 football world cup they are world cup winner, Netherlands got three times to the final game and lost, they never won the cup, this is life.

A star ranking for those who win several times would be nice, someone with four stars has won four times etc.

90% of ppl are from the us I didn't guess that!


and sounds like this is shaping up to be a big deal thats awesome ! I am excited for this

but IDK about a star ranking just because you take great pics has nothing to do with fish keeping I think in their profile it should be noted how many wins they have and stuff but idk about if you have 5 wins you become some 5 star person or something on you posts...idk just thinking

its a nice idea to think you win something but I really dont think its needed just that gold rossette is good enough :)

Im excited :)

But also the gallery could do with being updated on a side note maybe add the winning pics to here but with more easy accsess or easier to view.

I'm living my life, but not necessarily in the right order :)

Here's a sneak preview of the new heading for the new photograph competition. I thought I would show you first, I have used some of the winning photos from previous competitions.

Thanks very much, that's one of the most enjoyable parts of maintaining a website, I love messing around with photo shop, not that I got much of a creative side to me, I do try though :-)
